How to change your main Reclaim email and primary calendar

You can add multiple email accounts to your Reclaim account as well as set one to use as the main login and calendar for your account.

Updated over a week ago

Reclaim was designed to give you powerful tools for managing all your calendars, including those that exist in other emails -- e.g., your personal email or a side gig email. Any email that you connect to Reclaim can be used as a login, but you can only have one "main email" whose primary calendar will be used to block time.

How to switch your main email

  1. If you haven't already, add the Google account you want to use as your main.

  2. Navigate to the Accounts > Calendars page

  3. Click the carat next to the email you want as your new main to expand details.

  4. Click the Use as Main below the email address.

  5. Confirm the switch by clicking Switch Main Account.

Once your main has been switched, all your existing Reclaim data (including any incomplete Tasks) will be migrated over to the primary calendar associated with that new Main email.

Issues switching your main account

If you are running into trouble switching a connected email as your main email on your Reclaim account, there are usually two root causes:

  • Reclaim lost access to your credentials for that email.

  • The email is already in use as a main email for another Reclaim account.

If you see "Disconnected" under an email...

  1. Click the carat next to the account that says "Disconnected".

  2. Click the Reconnect Account button.

  3. Confirm the requested permissions.

If you see "primary_mismatch" when trying to set your main email...

This one is trickier, and if the below steps don't resolve it, feel free to email us at [email protected].

  1. Log into Reclaim using the email address you want as your main account. This will find the ghost account taking up your email address.

  2. Log back into Reclaim using the email address you're currently using as your main.

  3. You can now switch the main account.
